Cathédrale de Saint-Boniface is a Roman Catholic basilica and the cathedral of St. Boniface, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. This iconic landmark faces the Red River, directly across from The Forks National Historic Site of Canada and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
The cathedral, designed by Montreal architect Jean-Omer Marchand, was built in 1908 to meet the demand of the fifth largest city in the West by 1900. On July 22, 1968 (six decades later), a fire broke out and ruined a majority of the cathedral. In 1972, a new cathedral was built behind the 1906 facade and was designed by the famous Franco-Manitoban architect Étienne Gaboury, who also designed Precious Blood Church and Royal Canadian Mint.
